I will be hosting a ride in an area of the Ouachita National Forest called Flatside Wilderness during the last week of December (yes, right after Christmas, I can hear the eyerolls now).
Currently I am planning on this being a day long trail ride (might change to an overnighter), on the 28th. Date can be changed to accommodate guests! If you'd like to join in, please head over to the Offroad Trailblazers FB page and mark yourself "Going" or "Maybe" on the event, otherwise just add yourself to the list here:

(about 10 rigs have said they are going so far)
